Freud's Natural Order and Castration Theory
Freud believed that this was the 'Natural Order' and the male is happy, as he has a penis. The woman, however is unhappy, as she has no penis. Freud said that physically and psychologically the penis represented the power and identity of a male.
Freud's Castration Theory
Freud's castration theory is the idea that a males power can be taken by the removal of his phallus. For example, if a female were to take a gun from the male, she would have 'castrated' him by doing so, as his gun is representative of a males penis which is seen to hold his power and dominance over the opposite sex. Before, the female lacked a gun in order to show that she was a woman and therefore has no penis, meaning that she also has no power. By taking the males metaphorical penis, she takes with it his power, upsetting the natural order and removing the male of his identity. She emasculates the male and takes on his characteristics, leading to the new natural order.
Freud believed that men who are somehow emasculated and have these characteristics are seen as more feminine, and are mistrusted by society.
